 Nefterudovoz-29m  (Грузовое судно)
3 hours ago by Timsen

Company considering returning crew
After the 11-member crew of the "Nefterudovoz-29M" has been taken off the ship off Bartin, the MBS-Shipping was considering to take them back somehow after the storm subsided. The ship was actually two miles off the shore. The vessel is insured by the Sogaz company, and the insurance company’s representatives have been notified about the current situation. The "Nefterudovoz-29M" had delivered cargoes of cast iron to the port of Bartin from Azov. Then it remained off the harbour for a month. The new ship owner decided to sell the vessel, and it had to be towed to Rostov-on-Don. The ship had been checked by the International Transport Workers’ Federation (ITF) in Varna in August, and defects were revealed then, but the ship did not stop trading. Now the Turkish authorities were considering the possibility to return the crew to the "Nefterudovoz-29M" by helicopter, or if the weather allows to approach a vessel, in some watercraft.

Crane damage delayed supply trip
The "Vera" arrived at Guayaquil to make her first trip to the Galapagos this week to carry goods that the "Baltic Betina" had not been able to transfer, which had suffered damage to its crane. The ship was loaded in the municipal dock of the Caraguay and sailed with 202 20-ft-containers 26 40-ft-containers and loose merchandise as well as eight cars. Near Puná island, the "Vera" reported a fire on Nov 20, 2017, and had to be towed back to Guayaquil where it arrived at the Contacon dock in the afternoon of Nov 21. The 3,000 tons of cargo destined for the archipelago now were well behind the delivery schedule and enforced the activation of a contingency plan. Transnave, the company responsible for the "Vera", sent a technician to check the damage. If necessary, the "Orca" and the "BAE Calicuchima" will transport perishable food and LPG cylinders to the Galapagos Islands.

Tanker called NSRI for patient assistance and assisted itself in medevac from a trawler
On Nov 22, 2017, at 8 a.m. the NSRI Port Elizabeth duty crew, accompanied by two EC Government Health EMS rescue paramedics, launched the sea rescue craft "Spirit of Toft" to respond to rendezvous with the tanker "Caribbean Glory" in Algoa Bay, following a request for medical assistance for a crewman reportedly suffering hypertension. It was released from the call after the ship's medical crew confirmed that the crewman’s blood pressure had returned to normal following medication. The Transnet National Ports Authority (TNPA) then diverted the boat to rendezvous with the fishing trawler "Ubuntu" following a request for medical assistance reporting a 50 year old Cape Town crew member suffering breathing difficulties onboard six nautical miles off Cape Recife. The sea rescue craft "Spirit of Toft" was launched at 08.24 a.m. and on arrival on the scene, in unfavourable sea conditions with a five meter swell, there were difficulties to get alongside the fishing trawler. The "Caribbean Glory" was still nearby at the time and was requested to come alongside the rescue operation to create a lee. The "Caribbean Glory" was happy to assist and with the lee created, the RNLI crew was able to carry out the patient evacuation off the fishing trawler. Rescue paramedics treated the patient who was brought aboard the "Spirit of Toft" to the sea rescue base and then transported to hospital in a stable condition by EMS ambulance. The "Caribbean Glory" was thanked for the assistance. Report with photos: www.nsri.org.za/2...

Kenya’s Mombasa port to install eco-friendly cranes to curb pollution
The Kenya Ports Authority’s (KPA) is set to launch two ultra-modern diesel electric cranes mid next year at the Port of Mombasa to help mitigate pollution. KPA Managing Director Catherine Mturi-Wairi told a media workshop in Mombasa on Monday evening that the equipment that were bought at a cost of 8.7 million U.S. dollars are aimed at attaining acceptable standards of green policy practices. “The cranes will provide dust and spillage-free unloading through a dust control system that minimizes escape of dust during discharge,” she said. Unlike the mobile harbor cranes currently used at the port which handles one vessel at a time, the new cranes will handle two vessels simultaneously.

The biggest container ship ever to dock in Canada was in Prince Rupert, B.C., last week
The largest container ship to ever dock in Canada was welcomed in Prince Rupert, B.C., last week, marking another victory for the city’s international port which was viewed by many as little more than a pipe dream just over a decade ago. The COSCO Himalayas, which sails under the flag of Hong Kong, arrived in the northwest B.C. city Nov. 14 and departed Nov. 19 after being worked on at the Fairview Container terminal. At 366 metres, the ship is longer than Canada’s tallest building, the 298-metre First Canadian Place in Toronto, is high. The 553-metre CN Tower is not technically considered a building. Prince Rupert Port Authority vice-president of trade Shaun Stevenson said the record-breaking ship “reflects our continued growth and expansion as a container gateway.” “It really is a validation of where we’re heading,” he said. Earlier this year, Prince Rupert held a celebration marking 10 years since the first container ship arrived in the city. It also indicated a major turning point in Project Silk: a plan to make the community of 11,000 a major link in trade between North American and Asian markets. The port is currently completing another expansion, and in October handled a record amount of cargo. Source: CBC

Petronas signs memorandum of agreement with Bintulu Port
Petroliam Nasional Bhd (Petronas) said Bintulu Port Holdings Bhd will offer marine services to support Petronas’ liquefied natural gas (LNG) storage tank gassing up and cooling down (GUCD) operations at Sarawak’s Bintulu Port for three years. Petronas said in a statement today its subsidiary Petronas LNG Ltd recently signed a memorandum of agreement with Bintulu Port Holdings subsidiary Bintulu Port Sdn Bhd. According to Petronas, the GUCD service aims to bring storage tanks on LNG carriers into a natural environment before the tanks are cooled to cryogenic temperature (minus 160 degrees Celsius). “The (GUCD) services at the Bintulu Port will commence in 2018, positioning Bintulu as one of the premier LNG hubs and making it one of the few terminals in the world to offer this facility. The LNG for gassing up services will be supplied from the Petronas LNG Complex in Bintulu. “In supporting the GUCD services, Bintulu Port will provide port and maritime services with attractive rates which will provide cost savings to the LNG vessel operators,” Petronas said. In a separate statement, Petronas said Petronas LNG signed a two-year service agreement with Argo Engineering Sdn Bhd and Eastport Marine Sdn Bhd to provide LNG ship-to-ship transfer services in Labuan. “The ship-to-ship transfer is the transfer of LNG between two vessels positioned alongside each other. Ship-to-ship transfer allows flexibility of cargo delivery especially for small-scale LNG requirements,” Petronas said. Source: The Edge Markets

Vessel queue at Australia’s Dalrymple Bay Coal Terminal at highest in nearly eight years
The number of coal vessels queuing at the Dalrymple Bay Coal Terminal in Australia’s Queensland state is at the highest level seen since early 2010, shipping data and historical records from terminal operator DBCT Management showed. On Wednesday, there were 44 ships at anchor off the terminal and two loading coal, according to shipping data. Monthly daily average queue lengths for the terminal have not breached 40 ships since 2010, according to DBCT Management data dating from April 2009 to June 2017. Figures were not readily available for July-October of this year. In 2010, the average daily queue in May grew as long as 61.7 ships, according to the data. But from 2011 to June 2017, the monthly daily average queue has exceeded 30 ships only twice. In November last year it was as low as nine ships. The most recently available monthly daily average is for June when there were 27.6 vessels.

Liverpool City Council submits plans for new cruise terminal
Liverpool City Council has submitted a planning application for a new £50 million cruise terminal facility on the River Mersey, which would enable the city to welcome some of the world’s biggest cruise ships. The application includes the controlled removal of Princes Jetty and the construction of a new terminal, set within a “statement building”, on a new suspended deck structure in the river. In 2017 Liverpool welcomed over 60 vessels, with 120,000 passengers and crew members. The council wants to create a new passenger and baggage facility which will feature passport control, lounge, café, toilets, taxi rank and vehicle pick up point. The application is expected to be heard by the council’s Planning Committee in January 2018. If approved, site preparation at Princes Dock, in Liverpool Waters, is expected to start in spring 2018.

Hamburg sees 10% increase in cruise passengers
197 cruise ships carrying 810,000 passengers visited the German city of Hamburg in 2017, representing a 10% increase on the previous year, according to Cruise Gate Hamburg (CGH), which operates the city’s three terminals. “Over the past years the cruise industry has become an important economic factor for the city,” said Sacha Rougier, managing director of CGH. “There is a reason why Hamburg is known for having the most eventful city port in the world. It is a great location to stage cruise events such as the Cruise Days or the Harbour’s Birthday, which ten ships came to celebrate this year. Every year the events draw thousands of visitors to the Hanseatic city. Other spectator magnets are the spectacular ship christenings, sail-out parades and maiden calls. On top, there are the cruise ships themselves that stage evening and other events in the Port of Hamburg.” Rougier also confirmed that from 2018 the port will welcome Viking Cruises for the first time.

Ferguson Marine launches UK’s first LNG passenger ferry at Glasgow
Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon launched the UK’s first LNG-powered passenger ferry at Ferguson Marine Engineering’s shipyard at Port Glasgow on 21 November. Named Glen Sannox, the 102-metre-long vessel is one of two ro-ro ferries that are being built as part of a £97 million contract on behalf of Scottish operator Caledonian Maritime Assets Limited (CMAL). The vessel will be able to operate on both marine gas oil and LNG fuel, which will reduce CMAL’s emissions in line with Scottish Government targets. “Ferguson Marine Engineering makes a significant contribution to the Scottish industrial sector and to the Inverclyde economy,” said Sturgeon. “These state-of-the-art ferries are more sustainable, therefore contributing to Scotland’s world-leading climate change goals. They are also capable of carrying more vehicles and benefiting the communities that rely on them.” Glen Sannox is designed to carry up to 1,000 passengers and 127 cars or 16 HGVs.

Disabled freighter towed to Lyness
On Nov 22, 2017, the "Jomi" reported dragging its anchor half a mile off the Siclair's Bay in an Easterly swell and being unable to get its engine started. The Wick Lifeboat was tasked by the Shetland Coastguard at 0935 a.m. to go to the aid of the cargo vessel. The relief boat presently stationed at Wick made best speed to the casualty. As the vessel was in danger of further slipping towards shore it was deemed best to call in the own boat which was going to sea on trials following an electronics refit, to attend as well in the case of the vessel having to be towed to deeper and safer water. As the lifeboats stood by, the tug "Einar" from Orkney Harbours was also tasked to the incident to tow the vessel to a safe haven. The "Einar" arrived on scene around 1.15 p.m., and with assistance from the lifeboat a tow was rigged and the cargo vessels anchors retrieved. The vessel was then towed to Scapa Flow for repairs. The Wick lifeboat returned to Wick around 2.30 p.m. and was once again made ready for service. The Coastguard emergency tug "Ievoli Black" was also deployed to the scene, shadowing the tow. The pilot boat "John Rae" joined the convoy as the ships entered Scapa Flow and the "Jomi" was berthed in the port of Lyness. The "Jomi" had been en route from Riga to Reykjavik with a cargo of timber and a crew of six on board.

Engine breakdown on first voyage as Antarctic cruise ship
The "Silver Cloud" suffered an engine failure caused by a faulty pump on Nov 19, 2017, while en route to Antarctica. It was the first trip after a massive overhaul the ship underwent during a three month refit at a shipyard in Malta, to convert it for polar expedition voyages. The ship had left Buenos Aires on Nov 16 and was off Puerto Madryn at the time of breakdown. Power was restored to the ship in about an hour, permitting the "Silver Cloud" to return to Puerto Madryn in southeast Argentina for repairs. However, the following day, Silversea concluded that the replacement fuel pump part would not be delivered in time for the ship to cruise to Antarctica. According to the itinerary, the ship had started in Buenos Aires for a 16-day trip, including calls to the Falkland Islands, the South Shetland Islands and the Antarctic Peninsula. Now the cruise was cancelled. Silversea will provide full refunds to all passengers, as well as organising and paying for flights back to Buenos Aires and on to guests’ airports of origin. It also offered overnight accommodation and expenses in Buenos Aires, a refund of outward air fares, and a discount on future bookings.

Atlantis tapped to search for missing sub
The "Atlantis" has been tapped to help in the search for a missing Argentine submarine "San Juan" and was ordered to divert from a planned oceanographic mission in the south Atlantic Ocean to join an international team of aircraft, ships and underwater assets in the search for the sub, which disappeared six days ago with 44 crew members on board. The Atlantis arrived at the search area on Nov 21, 2017, at 2 p.m. and began using multibeam sonar and underwater communications systems in the search, according to a statement from WHOI. The vessel had been scheduled for a 19-day expedition in the Argentine Basin with the Ocean Observatories Initiative, according to the ship’s schedule posted on the WHOI website. The vessel is not carrying the submersible "Alvin". A U.S. navy plane searching for a missing Argentinian submarine on Nov 21 spotted an object on the ocean floor. The plane’s radar had discovered an area of heat around a half mile below the surface of the southern Atlantic, leading rescuers to believe it could be the missing ARA "San Juan". A mini submarine had been sent to the spot, 186 miles east of the Patagonian harbor Puerto Madryn, to identify the object but found out there was no submarine.
